A loan of $250 helped buying more quantities of fruits to increase her product inventory.

Erlinda's story

Erlinda A., 48, is making sure that her family has enough provisions for their daily needs. Married to Virgilio A., a farmer and driver, she is blessed with six children. She makes sure that she helps her husband earn so that their family can have a better life. She has been managing her own fruit store for five years now.

Erlinda has been a regular member of Center for Community Transformation* (CCT) for more than a year. She regularly attends their weekly fellowship meetings and pays her weekly dues consistently. Because of her good repayment performance with her previous loans, she was able to borrow five times in CCT’s Cooperative. She is consistent in paying her dues because she used the money she borrowed to expand and improve her fruit business.

Now with your help, she would like to apply for a 11,000 Philippine pesos loan. This amount will be used as a source of added capital for her expanding business to buy more fruits to increase her product inventory.

She dreams that her business will continue to grow so that she can provide for her children’s education.

* All CCT community partners/clients are organized into fellowship groups that meet on a weekly basis. A fellowship group has 15 to 30 community partners. The fellowship groups gather each week to study the Word of God, build social capital and pay microfinance loans.
